(1884-1929) became Director of the Steinschönau/ Kamenicky Senov Glass School from 1918-1926, and was himself a brilliantly versatile glass artist.   His work ranges from the gold and black enameled style, “gold and schwartzlot, usually executed by the local glassmaking company of Friedrich Pietsch, to finely engraved and etched pieces- he worked with master engravers like Emil Kromer (born 1898 Steinschönau.)  Beckert designed also for the famous Loetz glassworks in Klostermuhle (Klasterly Mylne,) and was for two years their artistic director, producing  exuberant vases with elaborate overlay and acid etching processes.    The photographs show Steinschönau enameled pieces designed by Beckert from the 1914-18 period.
